You May Not Be Ill, But That Doesn’t Mean You’re Well

When we were younger we wanted to be superheroes. Who doesn’t want enough telepathic power to move objects with their mind, or the ability to fly across oceans? Present day, here we are as adults and all we want is to be healthy. Because feeling good is a superpower and often our physical well-being is underrated.

In a way, taking care of our bodies is like tending to a garden. We must commit to our health each day to ensure longevity and well-being. The biggest key to living a longer and more spirited life is prevention. Many times, we can avoid illness just by preventing it in the first place. When we do not stay on top of our health, it naturally declines. Sure, we may not feel sick, but that doesn’t mean we’re healthy.

Here are the TOP 3 causes of deteriorating health and what to do about it.

1. High Blood Pressure

Many adults today suffer from high blood pressure (hypertension), which is no good to your overall health. Hypertension can be best explained as a water pipe system in our homes. The water (blood) flows through the various pipes (blood vessels) and provides water throughout the entire home (body). But, if the water pressure becomes too high, the pipes may very well burst.

  1. Symptoms: According to both the American Heart Association and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, there are usually no associated symptoms with high blood pressure. But just because there aren’t any indications does not mean hypertension is not very dangerous, hence hypertension’s nickname “The Silent Killer”.
  2. Risks: High blood pressure is dangerous because it causes the heart to work harder to pump blood out to the body and contributes to hardening of the arteries, stroke, kidney disease, and heart failure.
  3. Lifestyle prevention: Always keep a close monitor on your blood pressure. To help naturally prevent and lower hypertension, try implementing a healthy diet and exercise routine. You may also aim to eliminate any stressful situations or facets in your life as stress plays a role in hypertension as well.

2. High Cholesterol

According to the American Heart Association, cholesterol is a waxy substance that is produced naturally in your body (liver), and you also get it from the animal foods that you eat. Cholesterol is responsible for building cells, however, there is good and bad cholesterol. The good cholesterol (HDL) helps keep the bad cholesterol (LDL) in check.

  1. Symptoms: According to the American Heart Association, there are usually no symptoms related to high cholesterol.
  2. Risks: If your bad cholesterol gets very high, you are at risk of plaque build-up in your arteries. The blood flowing through your vasculature may become blocked, and the risk of heart attack is highly increased.
  3. Lifestyle prevention: Just as with hypertension, the best way to maintain healthy cholesterol levels is to eat a heart healthy diet and to stay physically active as much as possible. The American Heart Association also recommends avoiding smoking as tobacco use is one of the biggest causes of high cholesterol.

3. High Blood Sugar

Hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar, occurs when there is too much sugar in your blood. Although this can occur in people who suffer from diabetes, hyperglycemia can also occur after eating foods high in sugars. Recent studies published by the National Institute of Health in 2014 have also shown that stress can cause high blood sugar.

  1. Symptoms: According to the American Diabetes Association, the most common symptoms of high blood sugar are increase in thirst and increase in urination.
  2. Risks: If your blood sugar gets too high, you could experience fatigue and weakness as well as headaches. More severe symptoms such as confusion, abdominal pain and even fainting or coma can occur if high blood sugar goes undiagnosed and unmanaged long term.
  3. Lifestyle prevention: The best way to maintain healthy blood sugar levels is to avoid the overconsumption of sugars in you diet (soda, juice, baked goods, etc.) and eat whole foods. Exercise is also a step in the right direction to avoid high blood sugar.

The Ultimate Preventative Step

  • Take all three top causes for declining health: high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high blood sugar. With all three we know that the decision to eat a healthy diet and a daily light-moderate exercise routine prevents them from occurring, hooray!

BUT IT GET’S EVEN BETTER. Taking care of our bodies is a lot like tending to a garden. Well gardens need fertilizer, right? You bet! And just as plants need nourishment and support, SO DO YOU.

  • We have the support you need to TRULY PREVENT a decline in your health.

If you recognize you are struggling with maintaining your ideal well-being and want to be the healthiest version of yourself you can be, Optimal Health & Wellness Advanced Strength Blood Sugar Support “StrictionD” has the key to longevity you have been looking for.

  • How does StrictionD work?
    • StrictionD works to balance your blood sugar. The Ceylon Cinnamon assists insulin, the hormone produced by the pancreas that carries blood sugar to the cells for energy, optimizing your blood sugar levels.
    • StrictionD maintains healthy cholesterol levels and reduces the risk of heart disease. The Ceylon Cinnamon works to keep your cardiovascular system in tip-top health by leveling out cholesterol levels, therefore reducing the overall risk of heart issues.
    • StrictionD fights off free radicals and builds the immune system. The Ceylon Cinnamon contains antioxidants that work to fight off free radicals inside the body, ensuring your immune system is fully supported.

Note: Striction D is made with natural ingredients and is consideed safe and extremely effective for nearly everyone.

Hello. This is Matt, Senior Nutritionist here at Optimal Health Products, pointing out something important that you may not realize about the toxins in your body.

Most people believe that having a healthy heart is either a matter of good genetics ("he’s just lucky") or a strict diet ("I just have to give up salt").

The truth is, genetics and food choices are NOT the root cause of your struggle to rid your body of the risk of heart disease and a potential heart attack or stroke, no matter how hard you try. Your high blood pressure, bad cholesterol and high blood sugar have little to do with bad genes or ANY of the most common things believed to cause heart disease.

Your struggle to protect and even heal your heart comes down to 3 little-known factors that your doctor might not even know about!

Shocking, right?

In the next few minutes, I'm going to show you how a weird herb has been shown to STOP these 3 little-known problems dead in their tracks so your blood pressure stabilizes, your cholesterol and blood-sugar levels improve and you get the heart-health results you want while no longer worrying about heart attack or stroke.

But before I do, however, it’s extremely important to understand the three critical things that must take place to STOP the potential of heart disease, including the possibility of a heart attack or stroke:

#1 - You Must Balance Your Blood-Sugar Levels.

Sugar is necessary for survival. Blood sugar (or, blood glucose) refers to sugar that’s introduced into the bloodstream to supply needed energy to all the cells in the body. Our bodies are made to regulate those levels, making sure they’re neither too high nor too low.

Unfortunately, sugar is made from the food we eat. Our digestive system breaks down carbs from food and sends them straight to our bloodstream as glucose, a simple sugar that converts to energy. However, glucose can only enter the cells via insulin.

Unbalanced insulin levels result in either type 1 diabetes (also known as insulin sensitivity, or too low levels) or type 2 diabetes (too high levels).

This means, the higher your insulin levels, the higher your chance of diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM), a disease that literally damages the structure and function of your heart.

Insulin doesn’t care whether your blood sugar is at a healthy level. Its only concern is that you do not starve and have the ability to produce energy for your body to burn.

The big, ugly problem: Unless you do something to “short-circuit” this biological need to feed your cells, you’ll never have the heart health you want and deserve.

It begins with maintaining your insulin levels, because modern living—along with diets full of refined sugars and other challenges—have made it so most of us are nearly insulin-unbalanced all the time. This not only makes eating right nearly impossible, it also makes choosing when and how often to eat MUCH harder.

Think about the last time you were ravenously hungry? You began to feel weak and dizzy, right? You began to feel yourself shutting down—and that’s exactly what insulin issues can do.

#2 You Must Lower Your Bad Cholesterol While Maintaining Your Good Cholesterol.

Whether you’ve heard of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) or “good” cholesterol (HDL), I assure you. They’re having a MASSIVE effect on the health of your blood.

LDL cholesterol is considered bad because it creates plaque, a thick, hard deposit that can clog arteries, making them less flexible. (This is known as atherosclerosis.) Eventually, a clot can form, blocking a narrowed artery, often resulting in heart attack or stroke. Another condition called peripheral artery disease can develop when plaque buildup and narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to the limbs (usually the legs). Either scenario often results in death or life-altering consequences.

HDL cholesterol is considered good because it aids in removing LDL cholesterol from the arteries. Scientists believe HDL acts as a scavenger, carrying LDL cholesterol away from the arteries and safely back to the liver, where it’s broken down and passed from the body.

A healthy level of HDL cholesterol will protect against heart attack and stroke, while low levels of HDL cholesterol have been shown to increase the risk of heart disease.

#3 You Must Stabilize Your Blood Pressure.

Without properly balanced cholesterol and blood-sugar levels, your heart valves become restricted with plaque buildup, and that leads to a damaged and unhealthy heart. All this combined begins to affect other parts of your body and internal organs because they are starved of needed oxygen and blood that is pumped to them by your heart. After years of unhealthy eating, unbalanced cholesterol and blood-sugar levels all over the place, your overall heart health begins to deteriorate. In worse cases, not protecting your heart health can lead to major damage resulting in the need for heart surgery or a heart transplant. In the worst case, deteriorated hearth health can lead to death.

And it gets worse with each passing year, not only making it harder to avoid heart disease but actually causing you to GET A HEART ATTACK OR STROKEno matter how hard you try to avoid it.

The result?

Your stress levels increase. The number you see on the blood-pressure monitor goes up and perhaps worst of all, you begin to live your life in complete fear and feel like your heart is a bomb waiting to go off.

This vicious cycle not only accelerates with each passing year, it begins to compromise other parts of your health. Your sleep quality drops. Your stress begins to affect those around you. You stay away from strenuous activities including all exercise, and those things accelerate the cycle yet again.

Each time, the cycle speeds up, which is why heart disease is often so accelerated later in life.

This is pretty disheartening for anyone looking to maintain healthy blood levels and transform their heart health.

But what if there was a way that you could STOP these three factors?

What if you could balance your blood sugar, lower your bad cholesterol, maintain good cholesterol, naturally control your blood pressure and get rid of the fear of a heart attack or stroke?

If you could do that, you could essentially turn your heart into a well-run machine, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Can you just imagine how much more safe you’d feel if these 3 hidden dangers of heart disease were no longer standing in the way of a healthy heart?

Well, there is a way to fix these dangers, get your blood pressure under control, maintain healthy cholesterol levels and balance your blood-sugar levels.

The solution not only works on a deeper cellular level but also in your overall well-being. So the results are rapidly felt, deep and long-term.


Great—because this is only just the beginning!

The solution you’re about to discover only takes one minute or less to implement. So there’s absolutely NO REASON why you have to be a victim of heart disease that so many needlessly suffer through.

Introducing our 100% all-natural proprietary blend called StrictionBP. This unique but extremely effective supplement has been scientifically created to safely protect your heart from damage.

StrictionBP uses a “magical” little extract called Ceylon Cinnamon from an amazing herb that grows selectively in Sri Lanka.

Randomized-controlled research published on type 2 diabetes demonstrated the significant effect Ceylon Cinnamon can have regarding blood-sugar levels.

These results were pooled together with results from a recent study and published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine.

The results demonstrated significant reduction of bad cholesterol and increase of good cholesterol, as well as an increase in quality of blood-sugar levels after only two weeks.

These results were not accomplished by every brand of the supplement, but rather only quality-sourced Ceylon Cinnamon.

After 4 weeks of supplementing with 120 mg of quality-sourced Ceylon Cinnamon per day, test subjects (543 patients) saw significantly reduced levels of fasting plasma glucose (blood sugar) from -40.52 to -8.67, and an increase of good cholesterol (HDL) from 1.09 to 2.24 while decreasing the bad cholesterol (LDL) from 17.21 to -1.63.

After 18 weeks, the randomized control trial continued to find statistically significant decreases in levels of blood sugar and corrected cholesterol.

The effects of Ceylon Cinnamon extract work 5 different ways:

  • First, a compound in the extract called cinnamaldehyde provides most of the health benefits of this amazing spice. It comes from the oily part of the cinnamon bark.
  • Second, it’s loaded with antioxidants such as polyphenols that protect the body from damage caused by free radicals. In a recent study of 26 different spices, cinnamon won by a landslide—even beating out “superfoods” like oregano and garlic!
  • Third, it provides anti-inflammatory protection by helping your body repair tissue damage and help fight infections, thereby lowering your risk of disease (including heart disease).
  • Fourth, it’s beneficial to blood markers and helps your good cholesterol remain stable while lowering your bad cholesterol—all things that can greatly reduce the possibility of heart disease and death.
  • Lastly, since insulin is one of the key hormones that must remain regulated to be healthy, Ceylon Cinnamon helps insulin do its job of transporting blood sugar from the bloodstream straight to the cells.

Now, think about these effects in light of the 3 factors we just discussed.

By naturally balancing your blood sugar, cholesterol levels and blood pressure, you’re unlikely to ever develop conditions like insulin resistance, diabetes and heart disease.

You optimize your heart health, protect it from heart disease and you can lose the fear of a catastrophic heart attack or stroke!

The net result?

Your heart health is achieved at the fastest possible rate.

Now, what if you could get all of these proven heart-health benefits in the form of an easy-to-take daily capsule that protects your heart without you having to change your diet, spend hours at a gym or giving up any of your favorite activities?

Essentially, it’d be the easiest, most practical and convenient way to fight those 3 causes of heart disease that I talked about earlier.

Now, you could learn about these powerful ingredients and then try to independently source the individual ingredients. The problem is, after you’ve found all the products and sources, purchased minimum quantities of each (which is often a large amount), paid shipping on each, and sorted through a huge stage of studies on the most effective dose of each one needed to help balance your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and blood sugar, you’ll literally have spent weeks or months of time, and hundreds (if not thousands!) of dollars—and you’ll have waited all that time to even begin to make progress.


The good news…

Optimal Health Products has already done ALL the hard work and heavy lifting for you.

These critical ingredients, along with some additional compounds that further enhance their overall effectiveness, have been combined into one proven, all-natural, scientifically researched, easy-to-take supplement called StrictionBP, and it’s by far one of the most exciting, unique formulas I’ve ever had the opportunity to work on.
